Junito was an amazing human being. Ever since I met him and all the NY family in 2000, I knew how caring he was. He always look out for his cousins and was always sending us messages and checking up on our family. I only saw you for a few times but through your cousins, I always knew how big was your heart. You will be missed!! Keep looking out for us!! We love you all!!

Junito was such a great cousin! I remember our trips to NYC, going to baseball games, playing in the field across the street. Remember our trips to Cooperstown and amusement park. I'm still shaken up from the bumper car ride. He always had a smile on his face. Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it tomorrow as I am on-call at the hospital. I will be thinking of him as I try to help others. Junito, Thank you for being a great role model. Until we meet again! Love You!

I never thought you would be taken from us so soon but I am grateful for what time we had together. Even though you went through so much it never stopped you from loving and caring for those of us lucky enough to have you as family. I always knew I could count on you no matter what. I love you and I miss you already but I know you are watching over us with the same love and care you always did. Thank you, Junito. I was so lucky to have you as my brother.

I've had the privilege and honor of knowing Dudley for over 30 years, and I'm proud to say he was one of my best friends. He still is. From taking college classes to attending Yankees games, he's always had a positive and confident spirit. It was beyond devastating when I heard about his passing. I'm still sad about writing this, but I know he's in a better place. I'm not going to say goodbye, but till we meet again my friend.

From the earliest time I can remember (Abuela and Abuelo's house playing with Pinito) to the times that we watched Justin Wilson to learn how to cook, to those nights in the front yard listening to the Yankees, to Caden's birthday party this past July, you've always been there. The movies always say the line but it's the truth in my case, you are the best brother a guy can have. I will not say I'll miss you because I know you'll be with us during our birthdays, our Thanksgivings, our Christmas Eves, our good times coming up and our bad times coming up. Thank you for being there and being a great uncle to the boys. Love you - Dave.
